Verify the radiator is flowing properly. It may need replacing due to the age of vehicle. The clutch on the engine fan (the fan that turns all the time when engine is running) will need to be replaced.

Temp. guage indicates overheat 10 mins. from startup

Hi Reggie, I'm glad to help. TWO things I want you to check. ONE: You have changed out a lot of stuff, so you may have air trapped in the cooling system, you'll need to remove the radiator cap and let it run until your at operating temperture, while watching to make sure it doesn't overheat on your of-course. If after running the engine say 30 minutes and topping off the coolant if needed, it still runs hot. Move on to: TWO: If you have the electric fan, some do, some don't. If it is electric make sure the fan is coming on, if it doesn't come on then you have found your problem, replace the fan assembly. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Reggie!

2004 jeep grand cherokee engine cooling fan runs slow

Could be either one, but usually its the fan motor.
You can run a wire direct from the battery to bypass the relay to see how fast the fan is able to run. The connector on the fan relay can become damaged too.

Heater does not heat, AC and fan work fine

Is the engine getting to operating temp? If the t-stat is stuck open, engine will not heat up and neither will the heater, gets lukewarm. Or is it a door problem in the HVAC plenum? Go to for solutions.

2002 jeep gr. cherokee laredo overheats only when sitting at an idle, temp comes back down when heater and fan are turned on full blast as long as jeep is moving

you electric fan probably isnt working with vehicle warmed up lift hood and watch temperature gauge when it starts to over heat check to see that fan is working if not it could be the fan relay or fan itself if the fan does turn on its most likley the thermostat

Electric cooling fan will not come on at temperature have changed t stat replaced sencor on t stat houseing wired fan direct to battery it worked help me

there are 3 things that can cause your trouble .. there is a thermal fan switch (usually mounted on the side of the radiator midway down) ... that might operate the fan directly or thru a relay .. and there is a fuse ... the thermal switch is most likely .. if there is a relay then it should be marked on the panel where several relays are mounted .. same with the fuse .. the fan is normally only on when you are sitting still idling and the temp gets above the thermal switch value ..

2003 Grand Cherokee Overheating

This might help you as it looks as though you have an electric fan to cool , there should be a sensor on your radiator hoses upper and lower.they are actually switches triggered by the coolant temperature in side the hose. While your Jeep is sitting idle, shut off the AC as it adds to the heat off the engine not to merntion useing more gas. you should make sure both high and low speeds on the coolant fan work. good luck if this does'nt help check out the post, with more, on the 1995 Jeep heating up..

Have you tested the fan sending unit on the engine? disconnect that and if the fan runs (Key on) that is most likely the problem.

Over heating

possibles. lower radiater hose calapsing, belt stretch (heat), the faster an engine turns, faster water flow, to fast flow, not enogh time to cool, pls. keep in mindthat most items are produce outsidse us. consequently,quality suffers, been known to go thru a couple before getting a good one. test- have someone hold throttle, bring to 2000 rpm hold make sure temp. is up sqeeze top hose, feel surge immediatly if all is operating correctly(t.stat). if no surge=t. stat.
